How to Work a Tradeshow

I had a candidate call me and ask for advice on how to work a tradeshow. He’s looking for a job, and exploring many avenues. He’s already ahead of the game by having a plan, but here’s my advice:



Before the show:



Send out an e-mail to all of your contacts, letting them know what’s going on, that you’ll be at the tradeshow, and that you’re looking for contacts and opportunities. Be specific in what you’re looking for…a sales/marketing/management job in medical sales,… Continue

HR Tech 2008, 2005?, or was it 2004?

I attended the 2008 HR Tech Conference and Expo in Chicago last week. I've attended this show, on and off, for almost 11 years now. I haven't been to an HR Tech for 3 years before last week... Prior to joining Arbita recently I was more focused on the 3rd party Staffing and Recruiting side of things for those 3 years - So, I've been on the StaffingWorld, NAPS, NACCB circuit for a while.



It was like I never left. Don Ramer calls this… Continue

The Art of University Hiring

In my experience in helping to set up the recruiting at local universities in my previous job and then working on doing the same for my current organization, I thought it extremely important to share some insights on this. I have been doing this for 4 years, and it is amazing how some companies do this right and some just don't get it. I was answering a question on LinkedIn that prompted this article, so as promised to those who read that response, here is a much more detailed version on… Continue

ATS Tip of the Week - Client Experience Test

While working throughout the day within your applicant tracking systems (ATS), it can be easy to take for granted the amount of transparent automation that is occurring. The ATS automates posting requisitions, sending emails, generating schedules, etc. Each part of the automation makes your hiring processes more manageable and efficient. In fact, a good ATS can some times make you forget about one of it biggest values, which is attracting and hiring quality candidates.



For many, the… Continue

if u cn reed this us cn bee a dyamic hed of hr

From one of the Yahoo recruiting groups yesterday; my impression is that if you're a recruiter searching for your head of HR, you really should spell check before sending. Doesn't anyone realize that you only get one chance at a first impression???



[one more thing - these cookie cutter specs do nothing to differentiate the position nor the company]



This is the real description listed under Wanted Dyamic Head of HR. Really. Things that are emboldened were… Continue

Is Bounty Jobs A Risk To Our Industry?

I just finished writing a piece in one of the forums regarding Bounty Jobs and it is something recruiters need to be warned about now. In brief, Bounty Jobs is a "bulletin board" where employers can post open positions to the recruiting community and be rewarded with having an endless number of recruiters work the search on contingency. I would like to point out that I believe the concept is brilliant and the folks at Bounty Jobs are well intentioned - it is largely the employers that are to… Continue

Maximize the ATS 30 Day Trial

You have been searching for the right applicant tracking system (ATS) and have narrowed the search down to a few selections. Now what? Some folks simply select a ATS based on documentation and demonstrations, while the others go for free 30 day trials. The trials are offered by many ATS vendors, and it is my opinion that everyone searching for an ATS can benefit from a trial. However, it is important to maximize your trial experience to ensure the ATS is a fit for you and your… Continue
